Talks that keep you Awake!

Our talks are backed by our 100% No Bullshit Guarantee* and delivered by leading data scientists and engineers from top organizations like Facebook, Netflix, Lyft, Salesforce, Stanford University, WeWork, MIT & many more.

6 Unique Tracks

This year we are going all in and offering you six unique tracks focusing on: Data Platforms & Pipelines, Machine & Deep Learning, Databases & Tools, Data Analytics, building AI Products and Hero Engineering.

Max - 500

Tired of mega-conferences where its hard to interact with people? We are too, so we limit attendees to 500 for each of our events. Our attendees are also highly-skilled data scientists, engineers, analysts & engineering managers.

Born to be Open Source

We believe in Open Source; code, content and mentality. We feature top open source contributors and tools at our talks. Afterwards, we publish all content for the community, for free.

Community Powered

We are a diverse group of geeks, coders, scientists, analysts (& a former astronaut serving your lunch). We care deeply about local data communities, no big $/€ sponsors here, just data nerds, like you & me.

Networking that works

Experience our popular "Office Hours" format plus our favored Data Community Party. Through our intentional matching opportunities you'll meet data influencers who will positively impact your career.

What Our Attendees Say

Data Council was really great. The vibe and culture were exactly what I felt from following the RSS feeds, Twitter, watching YouTube, etc. for the last couple of years, and what attracted me to want to come to the event. I will be recommending it to friends! It was a real pleasure speaking.

Data Council is a really a great conference for technical talks with real insights to data engineering challenges and solutions. As an engineer who works on open-source software I found it helpful to hear first hand from users that are working on real world challenges.
